Students may begin taking college courses their sophomore year, upon meeting eligibility requirements. NOVA Academy covers the cost of tuition, books, and fees so that our students may enroll in these courses free of charge. This saves students both time and money as they begin creating pathways to college and career success—while still in high school.
